5 Things You Should Know Today - Aug. 29, 2012
Busch's and Botsford team up to teach Farmington area kids about health snacks and lunches.
As we move closer to the unofficial end of summer, families have an opportunity today to get ready for a healthy start to the school year.
Here's what else you should know:
1. The weather
There may be some patchy fog around the metro area this morning, so check our real-time traffic map for road conditions. The National Weather Service predicts a sunny day with a high around 80, and a clear night with a low around 60.
This workshop for kids ages 8-13, held at Busch's Fresh Food Market in Farmington Hills, focuses on getting a healthy start to the new school year.
